[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1537

So Newegg said they will let me switch the board out if I want. I just really don't like blue LED. I like the blue switches and this keyboard though. I'm not big on red switches so I was thinking brown. That way I could have white LED. But is it really worth the hassle?? In the day I have had it, I have become attached to this little guy. I might just keep it and get over the color.

I say keep it and get over the color, if you're more interested in led color just go back to a rubber dome led board with the color you want.

otherwise you have to send it back, wait for newegg rma to aprove the return, then have them mail you a new one ( at your cost, since they don't do exhanges for different products, just refund your return, and you would have to re-buy the one you want )
and they may or may not hit you with a restocking fee.

Or just return it entirely and get an XT or QFR tongue.gif

there really isn't that much of a difference between brown and red, the bump is only noticeable if you're looking for it.

Also, as sweet looking as my board is, i'm holding off on KOTM, I can't compete against the barney keyboard.

I'd say it's worth it. (I own a QF TK with brown switches x white LED). I think, for me, a hue-ed LED light in front of me all the time is a bit much. I know I can turn it off. But it's so beautiful and helps with typing in certain brightness/situations. thumb.gif

but of course, if you really don't want the hassle and wait for another board, turn the LED off. It's a pain with the TK though, as the LEDs on the arrow keys cannot be turned off if you're using it in that mode... A board with such "personality". biggrin.gif

Switch type always takes precedence over LED color!

My only thing is, Newegg advertised all three TK boards as having red LED. If I had known before I got the board that it would be blue, I likely would have bought something else.

However the blue switches feel really nice. So I will keep it and maybe start a collection!

One day I should try a blue switch to see what all the fuss is about. rolleyes.gif I think my next (IF I can ever afford it! lol) might be a red switch... or black... but blues are tempting too... tongue.gif

Let's just say that it took a lil' bit of research and 2 months of waiting from another member! I would've been tempted if the deal was still up for that free CC but I wanted it to go with my 660C, and it goes perfectly! It feels slightly less springy/poppy than my 660C but it just feel and looks so amazing!

I just had reds. They're pretty soft, it's a nice switch but I needed a little more resistance. That's why I went with Blue this time, it feels like the right switch for me. I thought the clicking would get on my nerves but I actually enjoy it.

Was it expensive at all? I have a feeling people are going to start flipping these 23UB's like clacks.

It's a shame that they've discontinued it though, I don't even see why they would. Hopefully Leopold can save us with a Topre version of that black keypad they've come up with, for 23UB non-owners at least rolleyes.gif

Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, or if this is a rules violation, but this club might be interested in knowing that the Egg is running a sale today only on Cherry Brown CM Storms. $69 shipped.
